You are not alone. I keep pushing myself to achieve more eventhough I know I am better off than most and I'm grateful for that.— AA (@AstericoA) August 3, 2019
Being insecure mean you're less likely to take foolish risks. It's a form of waryness, a survival function. Just don't allow it to dominate. Still remember flying to Brazil and in the plane, I watched "Love by chance" for the 1st time. Excitement on my face was priceless.— Princy Mthombeni (@Princymthombeni) August 4, 2019
